On the road again, and again
The last couple of weeks before our trip it seemed that all our friends and family wanted to get together. That was great, but cut into our packing and planning. At some point the thing to do was to just get everything loaded in the van. Sorting can happen later.
The house shutdown went well. Of course, I won't know exactly how well until it's time to restart everything. That's when I find out if the plumbing was well drained or if I need to play plumber again.
We were a bit late meeting up with friends downstate due to an accident on the highway -mine. Nothing major, no one was hurt, but we tapped bumpers with a Buic. Both cars were drivable. I haven't had an insurance claim in 39 years of driving. Let's see how my insurance company treats me.
My lovely wife and I will be spending time with family for a few days. My grandson will be baptized on Sunday. A niece whom I haven't seen in a few years will be flying up. Our other daughter and her family will be joining us. Even if they weren't family, they are the sort of people I'd like to hang with anyway.
We should be back in the road again on Monday. I think I'll wait until the commuter traffic dies down to a dull roar. The 95 loop around Boston is crazy drive at the best of times. The plan is to head far enough west to avoid the Boston/Washington DC urban areas, then head south. Over the years I've learned the shortest path is not the fastest.
I live in an area of NH known as the Great North Woods. I'm in my dome-i-cile out in the county with my lovely wife and a varying number of family and friends
-part red neck, part hippie but all country. Experimenting and enjoying the adventure of life.
